Another huge thank you to Jeffo for this 2011 bottle.

Appearance. Pours a hazy gold with almost 3 fingers of frothy white head (after an aggressive pour).

Smell. Light grainy malt with lemony sourness, sweet hay and funk, and a little bit of old barrel.

Taste. Lemony sourness with a little rind as well, musty and sweet funk, plenty of old barrel flavours in the finish.

Mouthfeel. Medium body, medium carbonation.

Overall. Quality gueuze. Very nice.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2013 vintage.

Appearance - Hazy orange. Big white head. Retains forever with a layer of foam on the surface.

Smell - Lemony acidity. Lots of hay and wheat. Little bit grassy. Some funky cheese.

Taste - Tons more lemon zest than the nose. Pale malt makes its way through. Moderately sour. Grainy as hell. A bit of herbal and bitter in the finish.

Mouthfeel - High carbonation. Not too sour. Enjoyable and easy to drink.

Overall - Awesome stuff. Quality gueuze. Gets better and more complex as it warms.

750 ml bottle, best before date of 29/10/32, 2013 vintage. Poured into a wine glass while I was waiting for my flight at Brussels Zaventem airport.

A- Pours a hazy gold color, big white head, great retention and lacing.

S- Lemon acidity, lots of funk, hay and socks/sweatiness.

T- Lemony tartness, moderate acidity, hay and milder funkiness, some bretty apple/pear fruit flavors, oak towards the finish.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth, soft feel.

O- A nice blend overall but nothing here really jumps out at me, at least I can't taste the de Troch.
